I ain't gonna leave no hair in the sink or nothing like that.

We celebrate our 15th anniversary today. I pause to reflect on the vast changes during that time and our humble origins to where we are now by God's blessed providence.

Though we fail to meet expectations, God exceeds them.

God is good. All the time.
All the time. God is good.

He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. -Proverbs 18:22

Congratulations brother. We have our 25th coming up in about six months.

Ahhh yes. 15 is a good year, although anytime I can celebrate that my wife has put up with me for yet another year is good in my book. I guess it is my own fault for marrying up.
Cheers.

Amen, Sean, to marrying up!

I guess she didn't mind marrying me too much as she's put up with my slooge for 15 years now.

So far, NCGuy has a pretty sizable lead. He might have dated himself a bit, however.

;-)

Isn't the average age of those in the blogging world like 25 or some such? Talk about your serious seniority.

Congratulations much appreciated, gents!

Ann, it goes quicker than you might think.

That's exactly what I told my wife when I asked her to marry me. :)

Congratulations on a decade-and-a-half!

It was good seeing you today, bro.

You made it Gunny! Congrats! My really old pastor ... I think they were married for 60+ years. Talk about a record to break! :o)

That's awesome, Jade.

One of our elders is on the verge of his 59th wedding anniversary, so he's also setting the bar high at Providence Church.

Rev, it was great hooking up, brother, especially as you got us the military discount! We should dine together more often.

hey now!!! I enjoyed the texas flag you got up there very nice. I'm glad you got it.

 
At 15 August, 2008 11:34, Blogger Jesus Girl said...

well, if i'm booted into Linux I can see a texas flag as your icon for your blog. If I'm booted into Windows, I can not.

 
At 15 August, 2008 13:25, Blogger GUNNY said...

Odd. I use Mozilla Firefox and, obviously, I see our national flag as my blog icon.

 
At 15 August, 2008 17:20, Blogger Jesus Girl said...

yeah, when i'm in Linux I use Mozilla, when i'm in windows i use ie.

 
At 15 August, 2008 17:36, Blogger GUNNY said...

Internet Explorer?!

Are you kidding me? C'mon, kick that to the curb and demonstrate your love for Jesus with some Mozilla Firefox, sister.

No, wait, it wasn't my fault. I was against it from the start and vacationed under protest the whole time.

I need to take my boy out to shoot & skin something just to try to get his masculine equilibrium back to normal.

May God forgive us for this incident that may show up on Dr. Phil in about 10 years.
